With the temperature not raising over -20C I cant help taking pity on the stray dogs that can be seen here and there.
In Tobolsk there were 5 dogs living around my hostel.
I hope there is a kind soul that feeds them because they do a good job protecting the territory. The doggies barked at me loudly for a couple of days and didnt allow me to come and leave.
On a sunny day dogs lay on the snow warming themselves in the sun. The dark fur accumulates the sun light and they feel warm. But when the night comes they need to find a place to hide.
Locals say that there’s no need to worry about the dogs as they are used to harsh weather conditions. But I still do. Siberian cities still need to learn to take care about the human’s best friends.
